Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Tracy arranged a trip which fitted really well with what we were looking for. We were keen to spend time with a local project and what was organised made the trip special."
Tribes Service: "Yes we felt that Tracy was there for us in every way"
Guides: "Brilliant-always punctual and relibale, helpful and caring-took us to district 6 museum even though not planned-his insights were invaluable."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Yes we liked being able to leave clothes etc to be re cycled I think that Tribes should encourage travellers to take things that are needed not just crayons and pencils"

lodges were lovely, food gorgeous. Real fire was ace!

Stayed in Ukhosi lodge that were stunning - not having Wi Fi which we were told was available did not work, guide less helpful and interested in a particular problem than other guides.
Lairds Lodge
The Best! Staff and atmosphere was superb.
